iOS 5 Incompatibility List

With the recent release of iOS 5, I thought it might be helpful to compile a list of games which are incompatible with the new version (or at least have some game-breaking bugs). So far, I only know of the following:

Advena - Crashes at random times.
Deathsmiles - Doesn't run on iOS 5, but Cave has said via Twitter that the update has been submitted.
Fruit Ninja - Constantly activates the notification drop down. Slowdown suggests possible memory issues under iOS5.
Jetpack Joyride - Some players have had saves wiped, but not all players.
Pocket RPG - Flipping the orientation crashes the game.

Feel free to reply with games that are having issues and I will add them to the list.

Dunno if it's game-breaking, but Advena crashes fairly ofter at random times on iOS5.

Dunno if this one is IOS5 either, but it crashes on start-up for me.

I opted for an imcompatibility list because it would be smaller than a compatible list, and it would also shrink over time rather than grow over time. Once all (or almost all) of the devs update their games, a compatibility list would be close to the same as listing all games on the App Store.

Well not really an incompatability exactly but Fruit Ninja has a couple issues I've noticed. First, the new notification thing is really annoying becuase you constantly activate the little drop down tab when you slash down from the top of the screen. Also, after a few rounds I've noticed things get really choppy in the game (erm...no pun intended) which suggests to me there may be a memory issue under ios5...

True. But not all games get updated quickly.

I'll delete

Game-breaking for "high-score chasers":

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light HD doesn't connect to Game Center.
